This blog is a collection of stories, thoughts, and general ramblings all centering around a little spit of sand in the southeastern corner of New England. It is called “The Cranberry Blog”, a play on the many cranberry bogs which the Cape is known for. I write about Cape Cod for a variety of reasons: I know its history, I’m learning its present and I’m very curious about its future. I’m in love with its geography. I find the space that it occupies in the cultural zeitgeist fascinating. More than anything, however, I write about Cape Cod when I’m homesick. So whether you’re a born-and-raised Cape Codder or couldn’t even point it out on a map, I hope that you can enjoy this blog as much as I do.
I began this blog as part of a project for an English Class at Drew University. It was initially called “All America Behind You” after the final words of Henry David Thoreau’s 1865 novel “Cape Cod”. I rapidly changed it, however, the moment I realized how great a pun “Cranberry Blog” was.

The blog is not the clearest when it comes to topic. It is about Cape Cod, sure, but what specifically? I don’t really know, I just tend to write about whatever my mind is on at the time, all through the lens of the peninsula that I used to and hopefully will again call home.

The website was designed by myself along with Anthony Grandel, and the logo is literally just a picture of a cranberry.
